Comments Off on Share the Love This Holiday Season

written by Raulla S. Mitchell “A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘the universe.” Our task must be to widen our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” Albert Einstein

Everyday, even with most of the challenges COVID 19 has presented during this topsy turvy 2021, and for too many, the challenges have been life and death ones, we have the opportunity to celebrate the true gifts of family and friends, in some strange way, now more than ever. This holiday season, while expressing our heartfelt gratitude to our loved ones, seated around our table, or close at heart but somewhere far away, brought closer through a family ZOOM call, let’s remember to extend our genuine gratitude and love to the family of all living beings who occupy our planet, and to nature herself to whom we are inextricably connected. → Read more

Comments Off on Time Out for Stillness and Reflection

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Amidst all the spiritual gratitude, bliss and goodness we share with our family and friends at this time of year, our holiday schedules begin to rev up, responsibilities to others pile up, and potential chaos can quickly send our heads spinning, creating stressful or anxious feelings which we know are not good for our skin. Stress has been shown to be at the root of many chronic illnesses, and can not only result in skin sensitivities, irritations and eruptions, but is a primary cause of premature aging.  Who wants any of this?  Not us!

Our skin, the largest organ of our body, reflects what is going on below the surface physically and emotionally.   If you notice your skin acting up, don’t panic.  Maybe it’s just time to take a look at your lifestyle choices this time of year.  Your skin is your best friend, and she’s trying to tell you something important.

Comments Off on Celebrate New Fall Fragrances

 

written by Raulla S. Mitchell

Wear your favorite “signature” fragrances year round. If you absolutely love them, the way they make you feel, act, express yourself to the world, and share yourself with those you love, they belong to you every day of the year.  Flower Fruit, Good Fortune, Splendor and Tea Party are four of your year-round faves, and we couldn’t agree more – they’re lusciously refreshing feminine fragrances 365 days a year!

If you’re looking to play with new fall fragrances in the chillier months ahead, why not warm up your fragrance wardrobe with notes of sweet vanilla cream, chestnuts roasted in brown sugar, sugarplum or hints of cinnamon, ginger and clove?  

Our fragrances are never overtly spicy, and we promise you won’t walk around smelling like a spice cake, but you’ll feel warm, cozy, relaxed and comfy inside, and what a lovely way to feel!  Play, explore, discover the fragrances that make you feel cherished as the leaves fall from the trees and the first chill hits the air.

What fragrances do you reach for?  I know my favorites.  Here are just a few you’ll love to try…
